_nefertiti_of_poetry Every mother has their own preference when it comes their children's, especially daughters, hair care. However, being a former #kiddieperm child myself and seeing how much damage it does, not just externally but internally with the weight and pressure to fit the certain points/"ideal" of a heritage that isnt ours, Ive chosen to take the time to embrace my #roots, every #kink and #coil, to rediscover that my full lips, dark skin and thick unstraightened hair is even more #beautiful because it is MINE, unaltered in any sense. After all, before it was about #conformity, the seduction and lure to look like them; now they are conforming to be like US, the #natural us. So I choose to help my teach my daughter, the next generation of a #blackwoman, exactly this: her beauty isnt to be defined by others, a picture on a box or the contents inside that box, but unto herself by #HER. Her crown of kinks is #coveted for its diversity, that makes it extraordinary. That makes her that much more special, that much more unique. That is why we wont and dont speak in the language of #relaxer

p.s. no shade to any woman who uses a relaxer because again, I used to be one who did. Every woman will find her own beauty that fits her. This is just the beauty that fits me and mine.

kellykellzkellz #Equality, rightly understood as our founding fathers understood it, leads to #liberty and to the #emancipation of creative differences; wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to #conformity and then to #despotism. Until #justice is blind to #color, until #education is unaware of #race, until #opportunity is unconcerned with the color of men's skins, #emancipation will be a #proclamation but not a fact.

the_healing_class We are a generation chained by the influence of the media. It dictates how we view ourselves and others. Since childhood, these expectations have been forced into our innocent minds. We have been told to change ourselves, surrender to conformity. We become what society demands we be. We believe in false standards, believing we are only beautiful with our hair straightened and our make-up on. We give way to endless products and advertise the very thing that is hurting us. Whatever happened to the appreciation of a gentleman holding the door and a woman who thanks him for it... Why can't we bask in life's simple pleasures without looking through eyelashes glued to your beautiful face? Why is a genuine smile "ugly?" Why is acne "unacceptable?" You are art. You are beautiful. Every single one of you. No matter what anyone says or does. Keep your head up. Look past the screen. See life with clear eyes....
Isn't it beautiful?
